Ah, the good ol’ days…the days when having a social presence for your company was simple. When all you had to was exist somewhere on the web and could feel “cutting-edge,” like you were “engaging in the conversation,” or *gag* “building buzz.”

It’s A LOT harder now. There’s a million social networking sites to keep up with, an audience to build with each of them, and fresh, interesting content to trickle into each one. CONSTANTLY.

It’s A LOT more important now, too. Social media isn’t just a novelty anymore—it’s not just skinny, crying teenagers posting self-shots or pages that auto-play bad music. The most successful brands have jumped on board and given a human face to their company, talking to their customers and building real relationships with real people. And those companies make bank.

You’re wise to that, Sumo-ling, and I see you trying to stay up on your brand’s social channels. You hired that intern you paid in Cheetos and Red Bull. They weren’t cutting it, so you tried to take it on yourself. But with so many channels to manage—on top of everything else like, you know, running a business—you got sloppy, stopped posting, and your social media “presence” got stale.

Join the club. It’s called I SUCK AT SOCIAL MEDIA BECAUSE I’M TOO BUSY AND IT TAKES TOO MUCH TIME, and it’s got exactly ten zillion members.

So now that you’ve admitted you’ve got a problem, let’s get to the solution.

It’s called Buffer, and it’s a super-convenient way to share content across all of your social networks with the click of a button.

Is it an app? Is it a plugin? Is it a separate site? Yes. It’s basically a magic wand that shows up on any kind of content you’d want to share with you networks—a tweet, a status update post, a photo or video, or an entire webpage out in the wild—and shares it with your entire audience.

Yeah yeah yeah…so it’s another social sharing app that ties together my Facebook and Twitter account.

Cool your jets, Sumo-ling. It does that, yes, along with your LinkedIn and App.net accounts. But Buffer also knows the BEST time to post your content, and automatically trickles it out to them on a set schedule that you don’t even have to set.

That means you don’t have to babysit your company’s Twitter feed all day—tweeting a link, waiting awhile, posting a picture, waiting awhile, sharing a reweet, waiting awhile. You just click a button to add a link, page, post, video—whatever—to your Buffer box, and it’s fed to your audience at the best times, spaced out at regular intervals so you don’t annoy anyone.

So as long as you’ve got your Buffer topped off with links and posts, your content’s being shared without you even having to think about it. Just fill it up once in the morning and your social media’s done for the day.

Just how cool is optimally timed posts? How important is that, really? Well, through easy integration with scheduling apps like Tweriod and SocialBro, Buffer’s been shown to increase clicks on your links by 200%, double the number of retweets, and significantly increase followers.

The folks who developed Buffer are a friendly bunch. They play really well with others, and they love to share. So in that spirit, they’ve made Buffer browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera, so you can add to your buffer from anywhere on the web. They also hook right up to Twitter, Facebook, Google Reader, Reddit, Hacker News, and dozens of other web and mobile apps.

That means sharing your content FROM ANYWHERE, TO EVERYWHERE, without having to think about it what, who when, or how. Just keep your Buffer full of stuff and it’ll do the rest.

Sounds pretty awesome, right? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could find an awesome way to share your awesome content with your awesome audience and make them think you’re so totally awesome?

Well this Sumo’s buddied up with the Buffer guys and come up with a special price on a special Buffer plan: The Awesome Plan.

Here’s what it gets you:

  • Unlimited Posts: Add as many posts and tweets to your Buffers as you want so your content stream never runs dry.
  • 12 Social Profiles: Easily share with all your Twitter profiles, Facebook Pages, Facebook Profiles, and LinkedIn accounts
  • 2 Team Member Accounts: Let your colleagues access and fill up your Buffers—perfect for letting your team share the social media load.

And for a short time, Sumo-lings can get 6 months of the Buffer Awesome Plan for the low, low price of $29.

It’s usually twice that much, and even then it’s totally worth it, ‘cause it lets you stay on top of your social media game without having to completely babysit it, giving you even better results than if you were. Win and win and win.

So grab this deal now, Sumo-ling, and let your company join in the social media conversation—the right way.

Sincerely,

The Chief Sumo

I love Buffer!

I've had a free Buffer account for six months or so. It's allowed me to keep up with my social media accounts while I focus on other things (like writing fiction - my actual career).

To be clear, I have a myriad of other accounts that schedule posts to all my social media accounts. I use Buffer as the backbone to my social media campaigns so that I'm sure there's something interesting and relevant going up. I can focus my other scheduled campaigns on my products only and be sure I'm not too spammy.

Some features that make it better than others (particularly for Facebook): 1) you can pick your Facebook image, 2) it isn't seen as 'spam' so it's actually shown on your Facebook feed, and 3) the web app is super easy to use.

What's even better is that this deal upgraded my free account. No "new customers only." This gives me a chance to try out an Awesome at a lower fee.

Yea!

Takes the suck out of social media!

I've been using Buffer for many months, and I can say without hesitation that it is the single most useful tool in my social media arsenal. I'm also a HootSuite Pro user, but vastly prefer the scheduling and simple analytics provided by Buffer, as well as the ability to use my own bit.ly account as opposed to HootSuite's own link shortener. I'm a Buffer fan from day one, and this AppSumo deal was a no-brainer... saw it in the daily email and purchased it without scrolling below the fold. :)

Buffer Is Fantastic

I've been using Buffer for a year or so and have enjoyed watching the company grow. If you're looking at the company on the whole, this is a great team to emulate if you're looking to grow your own business.

All of that aside...

The app has really helped me in my day to day life managing brands across various networks. I take time out of my day in the morning to schedule many tweets/FB posts/LinkedIn posts, etc so that I keep up with the circus that is modern-day life.

Finally Buffer is here!

BufferApp is amazing and I was stocked to see it was the featured deal of the day on AppSumo.

I've sent an email a few months ago to BufferApp owners and AppSumo asking them to make a deal and it's finally here! I thought it would never come.

I would have liked a year plan discount instead of six months but anyway.

I've been using buffer since it's beginnings and I've been a huge fan of buffer team since day one. I am really happy to see what these guys have done so far, I wish all start-up founders were as humble as they are. The product is awesome, it has apps/plugins/extensions for pretty much everything, my personal favorite is the Chrome extension, the way it integrates with Google Reader and Tweeter is absolutely nice. IFFFT + Buffer + Pocket is such a great combination.

My go to app for social sharing!

I <3 Buffer! It's my go to app for social sharing. I have the extension for Chrome installed, and all day I can send stuff to Buffer whenever I see something that interests me, and then forget about it, knowing that Buffer will share it on my optimized schedule when people are most likely to see it, and without overwhelming my followers with too many posts at once.

I've been using Buffer for a while now, and was thinking about upgrading to the paid membership anyway. At half the regular cost for a six month membership, I couldn't pass up this deal!

Great tool for social media!

Great tool for sending updates to your social media. It lets select what profiles to send the updates to and you can attach a link or image. I just hope they add a feature to schedule updates for different days. However, a have created a temporary fix for this using CRON and a PHP script to schedule updates via the Buffer API (I would post a link to my blog post for this but I don't think I'm allowed). Also, the "suggest a post" should show even if your queue isn't empty.

Using buffer for one week

I really like this product. Very easy to use. The extensions rock - by far the easiest way to share content, its kind of addicting. My posting has gone up a ton and our social marketing is back driving engagement.

Couple of features I'd like to see added: Google+, Copying a buffered post to another source (vs cut and paste), and to add some type of random offset to your schedule.

Overall, great product.

I am currently an existing customer on the Awesome Plan (love the service BTW!).

This sounded cool so I checked out the free version. Seems like buffer only posts to facebook, twitter and linked in. What about Google+, Xing, pinterest, etc? Lack of social-media integration kind of defeats the overall point of this app for me. Analytics and stuff are cool, but if the social media integrations aren't really there for automating posting/cross-posting...I don't see the value proposition.

Intriguing and useful looking!

1) Can I send retweets and FB shares from Flipboard to Buffer directly?
2) Are you planning on adding more social networks or services?
3) When I compose posts within Buffer, does it:
a) Autofill Twitter user handles known to my account?
b) Link users to their names in Facebook posts (adding a name makes link to their profile and notifies them via FB)?

Thanks!
